    do you really need me to define "loyal" for you? hard work should be rewarded with opportunity. if you're running a business, you want people like that to keep working for you.

    Yes, I do. Because the lib definition of many words is often different than the actual, normal definition. What exactly do you mean by "loyal"? Please be specific.

    Interesting. We have Amish stores in our area, but I am not sure where they actually shop at. Most of them seem to either get staples shipped from PA or grow their own. I very seldom see them in grocery stores (they are really Mennonites but call themselves Amish because it seems to make people want to shop at their stores).

    Did you miss post #234? It seems that Walmart, like any other employer, does reward its "loyal" employees.

    The Amish also shop at Walmart in droves, around here. Took this pic in the summer of 2013 at a Walmart in Massillon, Ohio. This is a little unusual, as I said, they usually hire passenger vans to take them shopping.

    Looks like he stopped at Lowe's first, there is one in the same strip mall.

    I think Giant in the US is overpriced. Aldi does a lot of business in my city, but it is a small store and things often are not in the same place they were last time so it gets a little cramped with everybody clogging up the same areas. It is all relative to your experience I guess. When I had friends come from New York City they were blown away by how large and open all the grocery stores are in my city. When I took them to a superwalmart they about pooted their pants.

    That would be weird to see. They don't do horses and buggies in my area but they do have those big econoliner type passenger vans they all pile into.
